Wonderful cooking class. We get to visit a local market to buy the ingredients. Kam even bought us sugarcane juice and banana sticky rice to try. The class itself was very informative, and I learnt a lot from her. She has a beautiful garden with all the Thai herbs that we used for cooking. The three dishes we cooked plus the dessert mango sticky rice were so so yummy. The portion was big, so make sure you save some space before going or you can take away as well. High recommend!

We really enjoyed the course. Pui is very friendly and open-minded, was with us at the market and patiently explained all questions about various foods, their effects and use. The subsequent cooking was also very instructive and above all... super tasty! We also received prescriptions. We would recommend everyone to take this course...a real enrichment of the holiday!!!

We had the most amazing cooking class, learning so much about all the ingredients and preparing the most delicious food! The instructor was so kind and resourceful, highly recommend!

Cooked 3 great mains and a dessert, was a great experience with a great guide!

So much fun! Very informative. The food was incredible and I learnt so much.
